Candidates must start their preparation in the full swing from today onwards. Put the paddle on the accelerator to cover up the whole IIT JEE (JEE MAIN + JEE Advanced) Syllabus.

What needed here is a proper study plan, motivation and lots of hard work. It definitely will help you in cracking the exam.
The very first step of your preparation is to choose a coaching. But one thing everyone should keep in mind that, not everyone should run to Kota for joining a coaching, this doesn't mean that the coachings in Kota are not good. The actual thing is that the fee of coachings over there is too high and not everyone can afford it, so choose which is near and which is best fitted in your budget. Every candidate must remember one thing in mind and that is coaching doesn't make difference, the factor which will affect one's result is the hard work done by a candidate.
The biggest challenge for the JEE aspirants is to manage the study for board exams and for the JEE, but you need not to think about it again and again. You just need to prepare study plan and divide you study hours accordingly. It might be possible that it take a little more hard work than the usual but you should not get demoralize due to it. Just think about the success you will get after cracking the JEE, so do not repent but make the best use of the time remaining and it is quite possible that you get what you dreamt of.
A candidate can choose the following plan to crack the JEE - 2015:
- Big goal and limited time: The goal is very big (JEE MAIN + JEE Advanced + board) and the preparation time is limited, so the first step of action is to be focused. Prepare your mind and yourself for the hard work and do not wait for a “SHUBH DIN" to start your preparation. Start it from today only.
- Start with basics: Don't feel shy in studying the very basics concepts of the three subjects; rather study these concepts in a way that you need not to study them ever. Prepare proper notes and the methods so that you can recall them when needed.
- Preparation material: You need not to worry about this thing at all. As in this era of technology you can study in the ways you want. There are video lectures, free study material on internet, sites providing free mock test series or with very nominal charges and moreover books are still there for you.
- What to study: You can't read every book or article, what you need to do is to study from the material which helps you in understanding the topics. Costly study material is not a guarantee of success
- Divide & conquer: Divide the three subjects in a way that the whole syllabus will be covered by you till the end of the January, as you need to revise all the subjects and to prepare yourself for board as well. You can set short term weekly goals like two chapters from every subject in a week or as per your convenience.
- Mock test: As soon as the boards get over, start solving the mock test papers and previous year IIT papers and try to solve the good and hard problems. Moreover you can prepare some short cut tricks and key notes which will help you in the revision period.
Need for speed: While solving the problems you must take care of the time as in the examination hall you do not have whole day. So try to be fast and accurate.
- Revise: Start your revision from the very first day of April. Just go through all the short cut tricks and key notes, worked out problems and the formulas. Remember do not try any new topic in the revision period.
Candidates can use the above planner as an outline. It might be possible that you amend the planner in your own way but the gist of the whole thing is that; whatever you plan or whatever you study should never distract you from your goal.
